Subject: Probably the best movie you could make of a Keeler novel.
Sing Sing Nights isn't one of Keeler's crazier works - in fact it's relatively normal as to plot. The story's major claim to fame is one of the earliest uses of a lie detector as plot device. This is overall a pretty competent film considering the time, source, studio and subject. I was impressed with the quality and number of sets, since Monogram often relies on a few cheap looking rooms and back lot scenes, and happy to see Lotus Long in one of her all-too-few film roles. The file is taken from a videotape that has some interference problems in the first few minutes but is pretty clean from then on. Don't expect a gigantic surprise at the end and you will avoid disappointment. If you find this sort of mild entertainment as soothing as I do, you may end up shaving your mustache to match the ones in Sing Sing Nights, as I just did. Ladies, maybe try dressing like lovely Lotus Long instead of the mustache thing. Enjoy!
